Fitting Clothes Over Cloth Diapers

If you’re starting your cloth diapering journey after using disposables for a time, you may be noticing that your baby’s clothes aren’t fitting quite like they used to. Growth spurt? Maybe. Fluffy bums can be a little trickier to fit clothing over, though, as most baby clothes are designed to go over very trim disposables.There are essentially three main options to work around fluffy bums: sizing up, buying clothing designed to accommodate fluffy butts, or using alternate clothing choices.The easiest, at least if you were already gifted with lots of baby clothes at a shower or as hand-me-downs, is to...
